The State | IN BRIEF / MERCED

February 02, 2002|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A judge has turned down a request by accused triple murderer Cary Stayner to have robbery, burglary and kidnapping charges against him dismissed.

Merced County Superior Court Judge John Kirihara ruled this week that prosecutors produced sufficient evidence last year to support the charges.

Stayner, a former Yosemite-area handyman, is accused of murdering three women visiting Yosemite National Park.

The judge's decision allows prosecutors to seek the death penalty.
